Hello there Beastie friends! I’m just dropping in for a veeeery quick Beastie news update today… With less than two weeks to go until our first market expedition of the year, it’s time for me to get my head down and knit and sew like a monster-maker possessed! But speaking of markets…
The Market Dates page of my website is now LIVE!
Clicking on the image above will transport you to the complete listings, where you’ll find all the essential info you’ll need about these events. And hey, even if geography is getting in the way of you dropping into these markets in person, I’m hoping I might nudge you towards sourcing your festive gifts from local, small retailers in your own area instead of braving the horrors of the high street!
Next up, it’s a
Cat Fair Teaser!
New product news now… I’ve been working on a couple of feline-inspired goodies for my first outing at the Dublin Cat Fair on the 25th of this month. First up – some handstitched felt tree ornaments!
Expect to see more of these guys in more colours as the big day approaches!
Happy Blogiversary to meeeeeee!
I was a little surprised to see a notification pop up in my WordPress app this morning to say that the BeastieBlog is now 5 years old! Where did all that time go?! If you want a good chuckle, take a second and have a look at my very first post… With quality content like that, I’m impressed that anyone started reading at all!
Eeeek! If nothing else, I at least know my way around a camera a little better these days.
Joking aside, thank you all SO MUCH for reading my monster-based rantings these last few years. And 2018 has been an especially great year for bloggy connections, with so many of you adopting Beasties of your own, and even dropping in to visit me in Dublin on your travels! Cheers for being part of the Beastie family – you all ROCK!
And now, back to my crafting den I go! Next week, I’m going to let my trusty sidekicks Crablet and Explorer Beastie pick the name of this year’s batch of sloe gin from your suggestions – so if you haven’t already, contribute a cheesy (or preferably sloe-ey) pun in the comments below. I’ve decided the winner will receive a miniature bottle of the stuff when it’s ready, so get those thinking caps on!
